Here is a video from Compassion that talks about birthdays. Is it possible to sponsor a child on their birthday? Yes! At this link you can sponsor a child that is having a birthday today. Can you sponsor a child that shares your birth date? Absolutely. At the same link notice that you can “search for a child” (on the right side) and even choose the date of their birth. Many people sponsor a child for each of their own children, choosing children that share the exact same birth dates. How cool is that? Take a look at this great video:
This film features what a difference vocational training makes for our sponsored children. This includes a variety of skills — plumbing, carpentry, cooking, sewing, welding, auto mechanics and technology — to name a few. Please enjoy hearing the wonderful story shared here.
Here is a new video from Compassion featuring four formerly sponsored children. I met one of them — David — in Colorado Springs last year, and also met Olive earlier. They’re certainly impressive in what they have already accomplished in their young lives. I’m sure you’ll find their stories to be very moving and powerful in many ways.
Here is another compelling visit of a Compassion sponsor — Nick Vujicic. In this film he visits a child in Colombia (not his own sponsored child, but one with a story of hardship). You will not soon forget this video!
Here is another featured Compassion sponsor — Jon Bauer. He’s a musician who enjoys supporting a child in El Salvador. Take a look at his visit with his child:
